Crawfish season is in full-swing, showing up just in time to accompany the first glimpses of beautiful spring weather. Best enjoyed with friends and family standing around a fold-up table, it’s the ultimate gathering food. While many boil their own, every New Orleanian also has a go-to spot to pick up sacks of the hot boiled mudbugs for when they’re short on time or need a quick fix. The specialty can also be enjoyed at a number of sit-down restaurants in the area that offer both traditional Cajun seasoning and boils with a Vietnamese twist.
The list does not include restaurants that are doing boiled crawfish as a special from time-to-time or bars that hold boils during the season. These spots are the places that specialize in boiled seafood and can be counted on to have crawfish if it’s in season.
